MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Brewers teamed up with Habitat for Humanity Wednesday morning, May 26, to build a home in Milwaukee's Midtown neighborhood.

Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff traded in his glove for a hammer, helping Habitat for Humanity build a safe, affordable home. 

"You always have to work with the left hand, never the right hand, that's what allows me to have a job," Woodruff said. 

The pitching hand is safe after Brandon's first time working with Habitat for Humanity. 

The Brewers ace was inspired to help the community less than a year after his first daughter, Kyler, was born.

"Family, I think being able to put a house up, having a kid of our own, played a super important role in this project," he said. 

Brandon says the family hopes to do this for years to come, but maybe next time they'll leave the racing sausages at home.

"Hopefully I did a good job and it stays up, can't say the same for the sausages though."
